This book is very much a sequel to, When Bees Flew in for Breakfast in terms of both style and content. As with its predecessor, It’s a Funny Old World is written primarily for those in the 11-16 age group who think that reading has got nothing to do with entertainment. This poetry collection is short enough not to be threatening, but sufficiently varied and accessible to persuade the most reluctant of readers. An ideal introduction to reading for pleasure. Due to be published: February/March.
